Under-screen Fingerprint Scanning
A lot of mobile industries revealed a full screen with their products this year. But, to have a true all-screen adventure implies no fingerprint scanner or no home button on the front ought to be combined with the phone. Therefore, while the iPhone X substituted the Touch ID, it instead implemented the Face ID. Meanwhile, other mobiles phones normally set the fingerprint scanner to the back. There are lots producers are fighting on building a fingerprint sensor below the screen. However, this tech is not ready yet, though we anticipate that this will be available on 2018 mobile phones. Also, there is a rumor that Samsung might implement this under-screen scanner for fingerprint to its S9/S9+.
Maybe you are conversant with the AR games such as Pokémon Go, yet you may not be aware of other technologies of AR on mobiles phones. AR technology connects the virtual and real world in exploiting the camera as well as motion sensors. This can assist us in business, education, game playing, healthcare and other areas in our everyday lives. ARKit has been accessible for iOS gadgets with A9/A10/A11 processors. So many of 2018 smartphones will include AR technology, and also lots applications can fully make use of the technology for the enhancement of our living.
This year, Huawei series Mate 10 and iPhone X use the AI that allows mobile to deliver better and function more logically. With the use of AI, iPhone X can be able to unlock phones with Face ID, while Mate 10, it enables offline rendering, and also has the ability to recognize the photo contents and switch to the suitable shooting mode automatically. In time to come, it will be built in a way that it will better understand us. Furthermore, it will perhaps join with AR technology to produce significant modifications to the future. Another big hit we may see for phones this coming 2018 is AI, and also it may separate the mobiles from one another.
The Desktop Mode version of Huawei Mate 10 has widely been lately discussed as it can display the screen of your mobile phone to the computer and then convert your computer into a large mobile. Because Huawei has introduced such technology, in time to come, it will be made available to different devices. Nevertheless, it may take iPhone extra time to accomplish such feature.
Face ID is dependent on Neural Engine that can identify and recognize the user’s face and then unlock/open the phone. Also, it is quite awesome that there is no need for us to touch the fingerprint reader to be able to unlock our mobiles anymore. Face ID likewise uses the AI technology, therefore, if by 2018 AI becomes available on a few mobile phones, Face ID might be possible too. But, it is quite a long approach to follow for building accurate recognition/identification.
No Headphones Jack
The previous year, iPhone 7 dropped the headphones jack, and then this year, Huawei Mate 10 Pro likewise abandoned the 3.5mm headphone jack. It appears to be an overwhelming trend to say goodbye to headphones jack.
This year there is no doubt that full-screen is the center of mobile phones. And it does not end there; this trend will proceed. A few industries which didn’t launch all-screen mobiles are rumored to be manufacturing phones with full screens, like OPPO. Great yet, we believe that in 2018, mobile industries will endeavor to improve the aspect ratio for greater visual.
This is not a new thing to us, there are lots of mobile brands releasing mobiles with it. Using a dual camera, the images captured will be richer in color and better. So, the 2018 smartphones will still be provided with the dual camera.
Some days ago, ZTE revealed its Axon M that has a pairing screen. This revealed a rumor that companies such as Samsung and Huawei are likewise working on bringing dual-screen phones. Nonetheless, presently, the experience visually is not good enough as there is a rod joining both screens. Expect the manufacturers can come up with the ideal solution for their mobile devices yet to come.
